3 Signs Your Bathroom needs a Remodel

Do you find yourself unsatisfied with your bathroom, maybe you have outgrown it, maybe it lacks storage?

If you are seeking to make a change, understand that you don’t have to move to a new home to get what you need when a simple bathroom remodel will do the job. Below are 3 signs that you may need a bathroom remodel.

Changing Needs

With any family, situations can change and make what could have been a perfect bathroom into one that isn't as ideal.

Say you've had a child and you want to make sure they are safe from any sharp edges or they will need an easier time getting to the sink to brush their teeth.  There are small changes you can make to convert your bathroom to one that works for your new needs.

Another situation that can drastically alter your needs is if you have an elderly parent move into your house.  They may find it is difficult to step into a tub, where a shower would be more ideal.

In either case, modifications are essential to adapting to your new family dynamic.

If your bathroom's design isn't as functional as it used to be, consider remodeling your space to make it work with your family’s needs.

Planning to Sell

If you are planning to sell your house soon, take a look at your current bathroom situation and what could use an upgrade.  Bathrooms are one of the most important  selling points when putting your space on the market.

Buyers will often look at the bathroom and the kitchen before they make a decision whether to buy or not. We recommend speaking to a real estate agent to find out the benefits that come with a bathroom remodel.

While simple upgrades such as new lighting and fixtures can add a lot of extra value to your home, remember you are remodeling for someone else so try to keep the design classic and neutral.

Storage Issues

Lacking storage can be frustrating, as it means you often have to keep necessary items like towels or toiletries in a different part of your house.

Potential buyers are particularly looking for a lot of storage, so you can’t go wrong with a bathroom remodel if it solves this issue. There are lots of solutions to bathroom storage such as installing extra shelves or fitting a cabinet into a corner nook.
